The USB port is fine, because if I put a flash drive in it instead, that is detected and can be browsed.
If I plug in the S3, nothing happens. No USB icon in the notifications bar, no charging, nothing. This wasn't happening yesterday.
There are no yellow triangles in Device Manager, so I'm stumped.
Can anyone offer any clues as to how to go about working out what's wrong?
Try another USB cable. They sometimes go bad.
